Romans 16:1 I commend to you Phebe our sister, who is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: Romans 16:2 That ye receive her in the Lord, as it becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succorer of many, and of myself also.
Paul willeth the brethren to greet many,
Romans 16:3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Romans 16:4 Who have for my life laid down their own necks: to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. Romans 16:5 Likewise [greet] the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved Epenetus, who is the first-fruits of Achaia to Christ. Romans 16:6 Greet Mary, who bestowed much labor on us. Romans 16:7 Salute Andronicus and Junia my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. Romans 16:8 Greet Amplias my beloved in the Lord. Romans 16:9 Salute Urbane, our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved. Romans 16:10 Salute Apelles approved in Christ. Salute them who are of Aristobulus' [household]. Romans 16:11 Salute Herodion my kinsman. Greet them that are of the [household] of Narcissus, who are in the Lord. Romans 16:12 Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who labor in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, who labored much in the Lord. Romans 16:13 Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. Romans 16:14 Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren who are with them. Romans 16:15 Salute Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them. Romans 16:16 Salute one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
and adviseth them to take heed of those which cause dissension and offences:
Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:19 For your obedience is come abroad to all [men]. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise to that which is good, and simple concerning evil. Romans 16:20 And the God of peace will soon bruise Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen.
and, after their sundry salutations, endeth with praise and thanks to God.
Romans 16:21 Timothy my work-fellow, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater my kinsmen, salute you. Romans 16:22 I Tertius, who wrote [this] epistle, salute you in the Lord. Romans 16:23 Gaius my host, and of the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus the chamberlain of the city saluteth you, and Quartus a brother. Romans 16:24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen. Romans 16:25 Now to him that is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which hath been kept secret since the world began, Romans 16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: Romans 16:27 To God the only wise, [be] glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
